3rd Recent Attack by Taliban on Justice Dept. Staff

The Taliban had already attacked employees of Afghanistan's justice system twice this month. It was also the fifth major attack to hit the Afghan capital in a little over two weeks, coinciding with a new insurgent offensive across the country.
On the morning of May 4, a car bomber detonated near a bus carrying employees to work at the attorney general's office, killing at least one person.
Six days later, another suicide bomber rammed a bus in the same area taking workers home. Five prosecutors were killed in that attack, according to the United Nations, which condemned targeting civilians and legal professionals as potential war crimes. LINK
